Re: Ordinary Overland Build

Cool simple build! Any plans to add a roof rack to haul more supplies?

I got the Tuff Stuff 4x4 Scout tent. I had the Tuff Stuff Overland tent before (same size but also had an overhang) and loved it. I have compared the tent side by side to TJM and CVT and can't find a difference. CVT has a lot more options you can choose but build quality is the same. I like it WAY more then the Tepui I compared in the same price range as well. I'll do a full review on it when I have it in hand. Super excited about the Prinsu rack!
